Google App Engine and Java

On April 2nd, I was glancing through the list of RSS feeds I follow, and saw this one Brand New Language on Google App Engine. Well, it being the day after April Fools, I didn't suspect anything. While I was waiting for the page to load after clicking on the link I remember thinking to myself "Please, please, let it be Java". As I read that the "new" language they were supporting was Fortran 77, it dawned on me that it was a April Fools joke. As much as I enjoyed the effort that Google put into this years joke, I was quite disappointed that it wasn't Java.

Well, last week Google answered the most popular feature request by introducing Java support. Though I havn't had a chance yet to check it out, I am looking forward to a plethora of new tools to come out on the Google infrastructure.

Watch this space! I will try to keep you posted of my experiences as I try it out.
